Program Description

Is the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) just another "ho-hum" federal agency or the beginning of a "new age" for consumer financial protection?

With the recent celebration of its second birthday, the CFPB has found its footing. Moving aggressively towards investigative, supervision and enforcement actions, the CFPB has obtained nearly a half a billion dollars in redress for consumers injured by violations of Federal consumer financial law. With the CFPB actively seeking to put an end to financial practices that harm consumers and honest businesses, the Bureau has been coordinating with state Attorneys General to wage a coordinated and proactive effort to ensure institutions in the consumer financial market comply with the law.
Come explore this provocative new agency's priorities with experts from firms, Attorneys General offices, and from the CFPB. Find out what you need to know and how what you don't know CAN hurt you!

CLE Credit

States typically decide whether a program qualifies for MCLE credit in their jurisdiction 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program.

The ABA does not seek direct accreditation of live webinars and teleconferences in FL, ID, KS, NE, NH, NJ, OH, PA, RI, and WY.
